Hello, I am Kylie and I love to travel so when I had the opportunity to start my very own country style accommodation I was very excited. I also have a beautiful converted church accommodation located in Miners Rest. My husband and my kids are my greatest loves and I can’t live without them. Live life to the fullest, you never know what’s going to happen next!
Pound Hill Cottage is located in the suburb of Miners Rest approx 15 mins from Ballarat's CBD. The cottage is situated on our 10 acre property surrounded in picturesque countryside with lovely views. The cottage itself has 1 acre of land surrounding it so there is plenty of space for the kids to run and move. There is also a swing set and cricket set available for the kids to use. Pound Hill Cottage is surrounded by farm land and during spring there is often views of canola fields to be seen and occasionally a kangaroo or two. A short drive into Miners Rest you will find a local IGA supermarket, general store where you can buy takeaway such as fish and chips and a tavern which does lovely home style meals. You will find the area quiet and safe for families.
